Forest Nap (SOLD)

While I was road tripping down Highway 5 for over 16 hours listening to XM Coffee House tunes with my dog Daisy earlier this week, I apparently had some built up karma points working for me.  It's not just that we arrived to our destination safely and on dry roads, for which I'm very grateful, but I won not once, not twice, but thrice!  That's three giveaways!
  • The first I found out about via an email from my friend Kristi Bowman.  She'd posted it on facebook as well as in a blog post and wondered why she hadn't heard from me.  Maybe it was my strong desire for them and positive thinking or visualizing, because I loved them from the moment I saw them.  Aren't these earrings to die for?!  The lampwork is divine, but Kristi's charms add just the right finishing touch for that beach combing treasure.  Thank you Kristi!
  • The second was through the same Early Bird Designer Sale.  This time the prize was from designer Staci Louise.  I was scrolling through the blogs I follow to see what I'd been missing and found her post announcing the winner of miscellaneous components of coolness and silk ribbon.   I'm intrigued by the shapes and will be thinking of what to create with them.  
My feeling of extreme good luck was tempered by the fact that two folks before me hadn't included their emails so missed out.  A reminder to always read the requirements for giveaways so you don't miss your chance.
  • Lastly was another surprise, but especially pleasing one since it was a random drawing from the Art Bead Scene monthly challenge.  It felt good since I actually had to create something to participate!  I so enjoy the challenges and with October's I allowed myself to just have fun and not get so passionate and focused about the details of the inspiration piece but to just let it inspire me through the feeling I felt.  You can see the photo of my necklace at the top or go to my blog post.
The prize for the ABS challenge is from Marsha Neal Studio!  I recently purchased some ceramic shards from her and had to box them up into storage for 6+ months until I can move into my new studio.  I'm excited that I'll actually have some "outside the box" to play with before then!
I can't say that I've never won anything, as I am a lucky person I think.  Karma?  I don't know, but I do try to pay-it-forward (stay tuned!) and see the positive even if it takes me a little while to get there.
